I donít like it. The skirt is too long, the colour is too dull for me and it just doesnít really suit her. Which is a shame because it looks all new.

I agree. The whole outfit is not to my taste.

I am not liking this one at all. The skirt is too long and ungainly looking, and the jacket looks as though it doesn't fit correctly in some of the photos I've seen. The color looks a little dead, too. Lop about 12 inches off the skirt, give the jacket some alterations and a good pressing and add a bit of color somewhere and I'd be willing to reevaluate, but right now, no, this is a big miss as far as I am concerned.

I just do not like this coat...the buttons or something are just off. Plus..she has how many blue coats now.

Camilla is out dressing her today.

Great color.

Fit is questionable. Lots of gaping and wrinkles coming from the car. The fabric looks stiff - and might be causing most of this? Lots of sections and buttons fighting the visuals here. The style would be OK if I were not so distracted by the fit.

These buttons look as if the coat have been splashed with milk.

I like the suit, but not for this event. I know why she wore it, but ehh.
It does look warm.

I really dislike when she does these weird military themed outfits on engagements like this. Seems like she playing dress up.

Right...a little hint of it would be okay, but the style almost always goes too far.

My first reaction seeing Catherine's outfit today was that if the photo was a sepia photo, Catherine could actually pass for being in the early 1900s with that outfit. It definitely rang a very vintage and old fashioned bell for me.

I like the skirt but the jacket is bizarre. She has so many winter coats, I'd have thought one of them would have sufficed for today. Her hair is perfect though for a blustery day.

This is just hideous. The fit is off, the skirt is too long, there are too many buttons, the boots are terrible. It might have worked in the first season of Downton Abbey but not today. To me, if you are going to a rehabilitation hospital, you wear something bright and cheerful instead of something that wouldn't be out of place a a funeral.

Sorry another bizarre military theme coat. I wish she would stop doing these. This one is plain unflattering. All the different buttons it just distracting and doesnít look well fitted.

Iíd like the skirt but the length is off.

Awful outfit on Kate - another poor choice from the McQueen designs.

The jacket too boxy, the skirt too long and the high neck looks odd.

She has SO many great outfits in her wardrobes and and MANY MANY winter coats that she should have dug into the realms of her closet

The worst outfit sheís worn for a long time. Itís drab and elongates her figure to a ridiculous extent. The heels just add to this effect. I agree that she would have been better recycling one of her many coats.

I think they were jeans.

Skinny jeans have been very common in the UK for about a decade now.
